Another point was that the mounting brackets are barely standard. Every other component slot into my Startech 6U rack with no issues besides this. I had to pull and wedge the screws for the screws to fit into the cage nut in back. It's slightly too small for my rack.
I'm also not a fan with how the SURGE light stays on when you have it plugged in. From my past experience, this light only turns on on most units when its saying it has detected a surge recently and that the unit may be compromised so start replacing it.
The front plastic cover on the power switch is trash. I can't imagine using this more than 15x before it will snap off.
Overall, I would buy again as its the cheapest 'decent' unit of these features in this price range. But it was by far from an fully streamlined install today.
So I figured I am going to need another one of these surge protectors, w/ a prior brand I bought prior (Pyle - very good.), to essentially "split" the left & right side of my TV, sound system, & studio. And this CyberPower is exactly what I needed!
I am quite pleased that this device has the outlets in the front & back, so certain devices I do not have to plug & unplug frequently, can just plugged in the back. Meanwhile, devices I don't need plugged in all the time or only need them for temporary power, get to plug into the front of the rack mounted surge protector (ex. Laptop, cell phone, MIDI/distortion/effects pedals, etc.) I also has used my condenser microphone through a preamp, which is plugged into the CyberPower - No sound issues, such as "hissing", low noise, or crackling.
Works quite well!
I added a photo which gives you an idea on the size & shape, versus the other equipment I have in my standard 19" rack, along with it being rack mounted as well. You can see some the front ports being used - very handy to have.
I hope this may help in your shopping decision & experience.
Despite the event, I used another surge protector and my equipment is safely unharmed!
I contacted Cyberpower regarding a repair / exchange. They immediately replied saying that they'll pay for the shipping for the exchange and issued an RMA and a paid label via e-mail!
Excellent service; will always be buying the CyberPower brand for surge protectors in the future.
Edit: Got the replacement unit a while back, works perfect. Thanks Cyberpower!
You will need a 20 Amp rated outlet, as this has a plug designed for 20 amps (one blade twisted 90 degrees).
There does seem to be a shipping issue with this product though. The box it comes in is very thin and it seems to be thrown into another box that is barely bigger than the box it comes in. This means there's no padding for the rack mounts on the sides. Twice I've received bent rack mounts because of this. The first was bent all the way upon itself, making it unusable should I ever want to rack it. The second arrived slightly bent, but with the proper tools can be easily bent back so I decided to keep it.
However, the use of three different LED colors to indicate normal operation of various functions is...retarded.
Green should mean "normal" - UNIVERSALLY.
Not red, and not yellow.
Next, you have the cheap, clear plastic cover over the power switch - WTH is that there for, anyway?
Finally, you have fact that the power switch is installed upside down - Euroweenie-style.
It's almost like they designed the perfect power strip, and then threw in a few "features" to cripple it.
Fortunately, all of this can be fixed: The power switch pops out, allowing it to be flipped 180 degrees, and the clear plastic cover surrounding it also comes out when it's removed. The kaleidoscope of LED colors are easily yanked out in favor of standard, green 10mm LEDs.
Spend 20 cents worth of parts and half an hour of your time, and all is right with the world again.

- The fit & finish is on-par with PDUs from major brands and vendors (Dell, HP, IBM). The device feels premium (weight, balance) and ships with the mounting brackets built-in. Note that the mounting brackets are built onto the unit and cannot be removed; if you want to remove them, you will need to bend or saw them off. Note that mounting screws are NOT included - plan to purchase mounting screws or hardware separately if required.
- The outlets are on the rear of the PDU. If you have wide power adapters ("bricks"), they will cover TWO outlets - plan to purchase short power cable extensions (if needed) to get full utilization of the PDU.
- The lit power switch on the front of the device is a nice touch and appreciated. Anyone who has ever worked in a dense, rack filled environment will tell you that these save time (no tracing the cable to disconnect it) and make work easier.
Users who deploy the PDU under a desk will appreciate that the power switch has a plastic cover that comes down over the power switch - the cover is semi-transparent, allowing you to see the light, but hard enough to prevent an accidental shutdown of the PDU with toes or shoes.
- The PDU is longer than a traditional power bar. Plan for this before purchasing.
- The power cable running from the back of the PDU is beefy. Use cable ties to attach it to a side rail of your equipment rack, or use Velcro ties to tame the cable.
CyberLink has produced a solid switched PDU worthy of a place on your equipment rack at the office, or in your lab at home.
The price is right for this enterprise-grade equipment - get a few, purchase some Velcro ties, and get to work.
